What is Tab-Sidebar?
Tab-Sidebar is a highly functional Chrome extension designed to revolutionize tab management. Offering a click-activated sidebar that displays all active tabs and windows in an organized manner, it helps with efficient tab arrangements. It’s an intelligent solution to finding important tabs faster amongst numerous open tabs and dealing with shrunken titles due to limited display space. Additionally, it provides capabilities to customize separators, apply drag’n’drop functionality and perform an array of other operations, thus augmenting day-to-day browsing experience.
